Moving On

If you give in - do not stop and say "I'll try again tomorrow, or next Monday" - No, pick up, dust off the moment from your mind, and keep going right then and there. Don't let your head fall to a failure, but smile and know that stepping backward sometimes gives you a bigger picture of what is forwards! emoticon

The Road to Success

The road to success is not straight
There is a curve called failure
A loop called confusion
Speed bumps called friends
Red lights called enemies
Caution lights called family
you'll have flats called jobs
But if you have determination
An engine called perseverance
Insurance called faith
A driver called GOD
You'll make it to a place called SUCCESS!

Mistakes helps find Success

You can be discouraged by failure - or you can learn from it. So go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because, remember that's where you will find success. On the far side. - Thomas Watson, Sr.

It's Not Over 'til It's Over

Failure is only temporary, at best. Every day is a new opportunity to re-establish your goals and re-commit to your objectives. Yesterday's failure is in the past. Today, it's a whole new ballgame. emoticon

Fresh start vs staying down

'If you have made mistakes, even serious mistakes, you may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call "failure" is not the falling down, but the staying down." ~ Mary Pickford

Never look back

Never dwell on past failures. We should learn from them, but we must always look ahead and try to do better tomorrow. Time only moves forward, as should we.

It's never ALL or NOTHING

So I made a bad choice at lunch, maybe had too many calories? Tough luck, kid, but don't think it has "ruined" your day. Take a walk or do some jumping jacks and make a better choice the next meal. You can't punish yourself forever. Accept it and do better next time.

Love and forgive yourself!!

We're all human, and we're living 'lives' while on this health journey. There are times when we will fall off track because of a bad day or a social event etc. The key is to accept it, forgive yourself and get back on track at the very next opportunity...which is always 'now!'

Plot your journey

I'm a really visual person and so I motivate myself by keeping a computer log of my body compostion (fat, muscle, water, weight), BMI and different types of activity on different graphs on a spreadsheet. Whenever I weigh myself i put the data in there as well as here and I can see how I'm doing.
